Game 4 Recap: Head Meet Desk

bang_head_here

Over the course of a 30+ game season you’re going to have a few stinkers that are just frustrating to watch. Wednesday night was one of those. A 90 minute slog resulting in a notch in the L column. Outside of the early gimmie goal from our perspective the Hounds never seemed to click. In the first half we saw a little bit of the squad we’ve come to know over the first three games, but come the second half the 2016 Hounds decided to made an appearance. Maybe it was the change in the lineup (hello early season injury bug), or just something in the air. Who knows? As the game progressed we started to see a lot of long balls, crosses into the box going 10 yards too long, and way too many hopeful shots from outside the 18. When…



Know Your Enemy: St. Louis FC (2-0-1, 3rd in East)

The Hounds look to build on some momentum earned from the road win in Charleston when they host St. Louis FC tomorrow night at Highmark, looking to post a winning record for the first time in what feels like ages.

Saint Louis is looking good at 2-0-1 and are coming off back to back 3-2 home wins over NYRBII and Ottawa after drawing on the road in Louisville to open the season. Also, in doing some reading up on our opponents I discovered something that I probably should have known. Raise your hand if you knew Jose ‘friggin Angulo was on St. Louis, I didn’t and that’s probably bad on my part, but oh well. If you newer to the Hounds and the Army, Angulo led the line for the Hounds during the 2013 and part of the 2014 season, winning the USL golden boot…



Game 3 Recap: Saving the Best for Last

Pittsburgh-Charleston_20170408

Mark it down. Week 3, the Hounds get their first win. And not just any win, but a win on a the road. And not just any road win, but a win against the Charleston Battery. I can’t remember the last time the Battery had a bad season, and if the stat I saw floating around Twitter is true, we haven’t beaten the Battery in over 5 years. By every measurement these were a big three points. Not to mention 3 points towards the Old Guard Shield!

It was interesting seeing the defensive formation the Hounds fell into when they lost the ball in the first half. After the change in possession the entire team retreated back to just behind the mid line and hunkered down, daring Charleston to try to get through. While they played deep, it kept them from…

The Hounds hit the road for the first time this season to take on the Charleston Battery. They look to bounce back from a frustrating loss last week against the a team having a hot start to the season. The Hounds will be without the service of Agbossoumonde as he serves his one game suspension from the red card last week. In the interim they have picked up Abubakar on loan from the Columbus Crew. Presumably he’ll be in the line up tonight helping…
